$275,000 Workers Compensation Settlement after 5 1/2 years of Receiving Weekly Wage and Medical Benefits

Our client injured his low back at work in February 2014.  The accepted injury by his employer was a lumbar strain and sprain.  But within a year after the injury, our client’s employer hired an orthopedic surgeon who maintained that our client could return to work.  Our client’s treating physician disagreed.

The employer filed a petition to cut off his benefits.  This was successfully resisted by Anthony Baratta of Baratta, Russell and Baratta and the Court ordered that benefits should continue.

Thereafter the employer made efforts to cut off some of the medical treatment and also to reduce the wage benefits by claiming our client could work a sedentary job. The employer was unsuccessful in this regard as well.

After five years of extensive litigation in which our client was able to maintain his weekly wage and medical benefits our client settled the workers compensation case for a gross payment of $275,000 or the equivalent of almost 7 more years of indemnity benefits.

The case was handled by Anthony J. Baratta, Esquire.
